I am delighted to be one of the stops on the blog tour for To Provence, With Love by T. A. Williams. Today I will be sharing my review for this delightful story but first of all let's take a look at the description for the book...
Title: To Provence, With Love
Author: T. A. Williams
Release Date: 12th July 2017

Escape to the south of France with this perfect feel-good summer romance!
Anything is possible…
Struggling writer Faye Carter just can’t believe her luck. She’s off to Provence to write the autobiography of a famous film star and she’ll be staying in the stunning chateau!
So when she meets charming (and completely gorgeous) lavender farmer, Gavin, she knows that she’s made the right choice – even if glamourous, elderly Anabelle seems to be hiding something…
But when the sun is shining, the food is delicious and the air smells of honey, anything seems possible. Will the magic of Provence help Faye finally find a happy-ever-after of her own?

If I ever need cheering up I know to pick up a book by T. A Williams he has a wonderfully descriptive writing that just seems to bring everything to life. So as soon as I saw his new release I couldn't wait to start reading. One of the things I love about all of Trevor's books is that they manage to transport me to gorgeous places that I haven't had the chance to visit yet. I love to travel however since having children it has put a back burner on things so to pick up a book and feel as it I am right there is perfect for me.
Faye is such a likeable character and after having her heart broken a fresh start comes at just the right time. There is a lovely range of characters from Anabelle right through to the villagers who want to improve their English. The parts where Faye and Anabelle delve into her past are a lovely touch. There was also some emotional moments that may have brought a tear to my eye.
Then to bring some fun to the story of course we have the lovely addition of Marlon, I loved his cheeky ways. Especially his love of prawns which was very cute! There are gorgeous descriptions of food, scenery and characters that made this book so enjoyable. I loved the lavender farm and of course Gavin too, he has a tragic past and I couldn't help but feel for him. Their tentative friendship was lovely to see develop but could their be anything between them?
Charming and romantic, this book was a delight to read!
With thanks to Faye, Netgalley & HQDigital for my copy. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.
I write under the androgynous name T A Williams because 65% of books are read by women. In my first book, "Dirty Minds" one of the (female) characters suggests the imbalance is due to the fact that men spend too much time getting drunk and watching football. I couldn't possibly comment. Ask my wife...
I've written all sorts: thrillers, historical novels, short stories and now I'm enjoying myself hugely writing humour and romance. Romantic comedies are what we all need from time to time. Life isn’t always very fair. It isn’t always a lot of fun, but when it is, we need to embrace it. If my books can put a smile on your face and maybe give your heartstrings a tug, then I know I’ve done my job.
I‘ve lived all over Europe, but now I live in a little village in sleepy Devon, tucked away in south west England. I love the place. That’s why you’ll find leafy lanes and thatched cottages in most of my books. Oh, yes, and a black Labrador.
I've been writing since I was 14 and that is half a century ago. However, underneath this bald, wrinkly exterior, there beats the heart of a youngster. My wife is convinced I will never grow up. I hope she's right.
